I've heard that a single dust particle on that golden surface of the CPU would kill it.

I wouldn't doubt it. It's all the way in the center of the whole chip, maybe to protect it from the elements.

Here's a cool image just to increase my post count by 1: (It's the CPU's heatsink. No fan. Lol.)

That's how the HSF for the DX2 is (rather was). Why is there a chunk missing from it?

Here are my birds .

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b2...5/DSC00130.jpg

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b2...5/DSC00133.jpg

I've been taking the male to a bird vet. It's got a sinus infection so it's nostrils are red and look like their bleeding. Poor birdy . I've had it forever and I don't want it to die. They gave these special pellets and they're not helping.

EDIT: How do you make your bird not bite or attack you!? They never hurt my mom, they just go after me .

I had a bird that looked exactly like your darker gray one.

We had him for more than 10 years and he was an asshole the whole time.

Loud, smelly, dusty, mean... meh... I don't see myself ever owning another bird again.

They have to be hand trained from birth.

I can rub my bird's neck and feathers and he's just fine with it. I keep mine around all the time.

Edit: Video of them http://my.break.com/content/view.aspx?ContentID=346117

They're brothers.

Lol that's cool. My bird vice grips my finger when I get close to it. I like when they puff up, they look like feather balls . The thing about them is that it's hard to find them when they're just chicks. I bought a female (because the other died ) and I was hoping they would mate, but the boy is (seriously) gay.

Actually that's when I was scraping the excess solder off of my soldering iron. (swear to god)

I was trying to see if the pins would melt. The melting temperature of gold is 2000 feren, and my soldering iron is about 900 feren. Solder melts at 400 feren.

I've cut off a few pins. There's nothing but gold underneath. There's also a different model of this CPU that has gold as the heat spreader



Gold was fairly unexpensive back then.
